Charles Edward Shrimpton, Worcestershire Regiment 1919 – 1952, a talk by Pete MacCormac
17 May

Pete is a member of our branch and creates talks about members of his and his wife’s families and last year gave a talk after the AGM

This talk is about Charles Edward Shrimpton, Pete’s maternal grandad. He had a tough start to life, but found his calling in a post-war Army with The Worcestershire Regiment.

There were some ‘bumps in the road’ during his time but ultimately, he had a very successful career. One area where Charles Edward excelled was as a marksman and he, and shooting teams he was in, won many trophies and upheld the tradition of the Regiment who have always produced great individual shots and shooting teams.

Members and Non-members of The Western Front Association are equally welcome. Any new visitors are guaranteed a friendly atmosphere and a warm welcome from a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
